C.J. Brinker - Current Research


Here we describe the twenty-five year evolution of our research from understanding the fundamentals of sol-gel processing of porous materials to our current work involving the formation of elegant nanostructures by self-assembly techniques. These controlled porosity materials have found a wide range of applications including antireflective coatings, sensors, gas separation membranes, inertial confinement fusion targets, lasers, radioluminescent lights and thermal and acoustic insulation. Our most recent research has significant implications in a diverse range of technologies like drug delivery, cosmetics, catalysis, chromatography and custom designed pigments.
